You've captured a cracking expression of either concentration or being a world of his/her own. The depth of field helps put this in a class of it's own too

Implied relationship plus distance. Very good.

You've captured the intensity of the stare so well Ron, but the tortured/haunting face in the backdrop really kept me looking, also compositionally it fills in the scene so well, its great to see different and clever work like this, Adrian

National Geographic material Ron !

Top compo, the face in the background has a haunting feel to it, adds to the depth of the image. A real look and think image. Well done. Chaz.

Excellent image Ron. I like the out of focus Macaque in the background.

Superb capture Ron, such intensity of gaze. I love the kinks in the fur on top of his head, that's what happens when you don't wear a bathing cap!! Wink

This is perfect - the distal face out of focus enough to detract from the main face but not too much to render it unrecognisable, stunning work,

I've seen the print of this and it looks even better printed and mounted. Its pin sharp arround the eyes and very natural looking, it would have been easy to oversaturated the faces. Wicked!
